Cleaning My Closet


I want to burn the box in my closet
It watches me at night
Knowing it holds dreaded forgettables.

I want to burn the notes and photos
That made me who I am,
But I am not who I was

I want to watch the inferno
Of a past life's hell
As the grey ghosts escape into ozone

I want to burn that box.

    This is good and makes me want more. My critters have climbed out of the closet and lucking in the rooms and halls! (Report) Reply

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
